His Holiness Sri Sri Sri 1008 Baba Sevanandaji Maharaj
His Holiness, Sri Sri Sri 1008 Baba Sevananda Ji Maharaj was a true incarnation of compassion, ever giving, ever loving. His devotees lovingly called him Babaji. Baba being an affectionate name for an elder father figure who you would respect.
Babaji always radiated pure love and was a true incarnation of Krishna. He came to uplift the positive energies of this world, to maintain the higher frequencies that exist in the cosmic realm, and gift these energies to the Earth realm. A true master who was constantly working to maintain the balance of the light energies of the earth. Babaji constantly radiated with the divine light energies. If you were lucky enough to be in his presence, you could feel these divine energies radiating from him. It was calming, healing, exciting and awe inspiring. Just to be in his presence you were healed.
During his travels he spent a few years serving at the Shivanada ashram in Rishikesh. Whilst serving there, Baba Neem Karoli, the healing saint of India, passed through and happened to meet him and noted his commitment and dedication to service. Some years later Baba Neem Karoli came across babaji in Vrindavan. On this encounter Baba Neem Karoli took Babaji with him to his ashram in Vrindavan. Babaji served Baba Neem Karoli for the next few years. and was tasked with building the Hanuman temple in n Vrindavan. He then built a hanuman temple in the Kainchi Ashram and was sent to Delhi where he built the biggest ashram at around 200 acres. At the Delhi ashram Babaji begin by building the hanuman temple, then temples for Baba Neem Karoli, Lord Shiva, Divine mother Durga and another big temple for Lord Hanuman. He built a school, hospital and an Anapurna temple, the biggest in Northern India.
Babaji spent the last 30 plus years of his life building the Baba Neem Karoli ashram, on the outskirts of Delhi, in the village of Jonapur. Babaji left his physical body on December 13th 2008
Baba Neem Karoliji Maharaj, seeing his ultimate level of service bestowed upon him the name Sevananda, Seva meaning service and Ananda means blissful.
When Mad cow disease was at its highest, Babaji within a period of 9 months, built a Goshala (Cow barn) to honour the cows and to rebalance the energies towards them, by doing daily fire ceremonies and prayers. He had the cows bathed and garlanded to balance out the impact.. The Goshala was carpeted , had heaters, air coolers and fans to keep the cows in comfort. In Babajis words the cows feet should not get cold. He installed coir mats made from coconut husks.
He wanted to have the cows respected to the highest level to balance the energies. Getting people to get back into the respect for the cow.
This is just one of the many ways he was serving the world and the community around the ashram. Regularly assisting those who seek his guidance and healing.
